Happy Friday everyone! With the weekend coming up and Halloween just around the corner, I thought I would share one of my favorite pumpkin DIYs with you. It’s a unique, modern way to decorate for Halloween and it’s also an easy project to tackle on a lazy Saturday or Sunday. Just follow the steps below and you will have some awesomely spooky, chic pumpkins to decorate your home this Halloween season!
3 Pumpkins (I used 1 large, 1 medium, & 1 small)
Printed Skeletons (Instructions Below)
White Matte Spray Paint
1. Start by spray painting your pumpkins white. Allow 1 hour of dry time, then touch up any orange spots that are showing through. Then, allow an additional 1 hour of dry time after touching up your pumpkins.
2. Next, save your bone chart images by right clicking on each image and saving them to your desktop. Once saved, print your bone chart pictures on printer paper.
3. Cut around each image. Leave as little white around the bones and chart numbers as possible, without cutting into your images.
4. Then, dip your foam brush in the Mod Podge, apply a small amount to the center of your first pumpkin, then place your first image in the center. Adjust your image until it is where you want it, then spread a layer of Mod Podge under the paper and use your hands to smooth out the paper and secure it to the pumpkin.
5. Once the paper is smooth, apply an even layer of Mod Podge over the top of the paper and smooth out the Mod Podge with your foam brush. 6. Repeat steps 1-4 with your remaining pumpkins and let each pumpkin sit until they are dry to the touch (about 4-5 hours). Once your pumpkins are dry, you can place them around your home like I did or, since they are sealed with Mod Podge, you can even place them outside!
